The handstand practice will be lead by Andrés, and you can expect to learn the foundation of how handstands work in regards to balance, technique, awareness, and mobility, as well as a library of exercises through which you will be able to develop your handstands during your own practice in an efficient and safe way.
The slack rope practice will be lead by Mari. We will start with the basics, so you learn the ultimate body position and technique to aim for, before taking your first step upon the rope. We will also play with easy tricks not involving standing balance on the rope, for the fun of it and not to lose faith in the big patience process it is to learn balance. I will adjust the training and tasks for every individual participating in, to their particular level. There will be safety first and focus on the joy of learning in your individual tempo.
Originally from Spain, Andrés has been practicing handstand for +7 years. Having an academic background in sports sciences and nutrition, and now studying at Afuk, the circus school of Copenhagen.
